Arnold Schwarzenegger was apparently good at lying. But a DNA test cannot.
His now-infamous love child with Mildred "Patty" Baena was confirmed by a secret DNA test, which very few people knew about, according to reports.
A close friend of Baena says that the test was conducted after Arnold learned he was the father, when the boy (now 13 or 14) was still a toddler.
The Governator's image has taken quite a hit this month.
The question of who knew what and when has been an ongoing question, as was how the story got out (Maria Shriver apparently took care of that).
Arnold offered few details when the scandal broke, but Radar claims that Mildred wanted a DNA test conducted when her son was a toddler.
Schwarzenegger, desperately trying to keep his love child a secret, was in a tough spot but gave in to Mildred’s demand, says her friend.“Arnold knew all along that (the boy) was his,” the source said. “But Mildred insisted on a DNA test – and it proved Arnold was the father.”
Arnold also made secret payments to Mildred Patricia Baena, who worked for the family for over 20 years and retired earlier this year.
He and Maria have four children. Jane Seymour has posited that the love child with Baena may not be the only illegitimate one of his.
